, michelle caruso-cabrera. hello to everybody. andy bush, i wanted to get with you. i don't think it's a very subtle point. i think the fed has influenced interest rates a lot. i think if the fed quits qe and rates will continue to rise. i don't have a crystal ball any better than anybody else, but i have a hard time believing this whole process has been discounted either by bonds or stocks, and i will say it once again, if in the next year the fed does what bernanke said it's going to do and it ends qe -- it ends bond buying, andy bush, then i think the ten-year rate goes from 3.5% to 4%, what's your take? >> i think that's a good level of a normalized interest rate structure for the united states, assuming we can get growth at 3.5%, they created this situation when they came up with qe part 3 and said it would occur to infinite and i think that's where the markets got in there. so what i'm worried about now is the overleveraging that has occurred over the last year and the pulling out from there. we saw that in emerging markets and we saw it in emerging market bonds and you saw brazil at th

sheila jackson lee. thank you. >>> joining me, michelle goldberg, for "newsweek" and "the daily beast." and terry o'neill, president of the national association for women. michelle, you've covered the antiabortion movement in this country, grassroots level, done a lot of incredible reporting. explain to me through that prism why the republican party is doing this. i am genuinely confused. >> i think there are two different things. i mean, first of all, you know, there are a huge number of republican officeholders who got into office specifically because they want to ban abortion. it shouldn't be surprising that that's what they're doing even if the politics of it seem wacky and counterproductive to us. >> they ran on it, they promised this and believe in it so this is what they're doing it. >> their base is demanding it, response to the kermit gosnell trial. there's actually a kind of growing pragmatism in the antiabortion movement. they're moving away from personhood amendments which are patently absurd and kind of strike people, strike most people as intuitively ridiculous. >> and t
by a world economy in turmoil? >>> i want to bring in keith mccullough and michelle myer. nice to see both of you this weekend. keith, you say the economy gets a b minus but we could get an a. what makes you so optimistic? how do we get that a? >> if we did more of the same, it would be awesome. a b plus could be an "a." an "a" is what it is relative to the rest of the world already. to have a stronger dollar would be my number one choice. we need to get ben bernanke out of the way. for me, the thing that scares me the most is him not getting out of the way. i think if you get him out of the way and the market is trying to get him out of the way, what ends up happening, the dollar strengthens, come modmodity pri come down. you start to get some consumption growth in the economy, which is how this economy works. >> the household balance sheets have been improving. keith, when you say get ben bernan bernanke out of the way? you mean he doesn't need to be pumping $85 billion a month into the economy. >> i want the guy out of the way. he has to stop with the bond buying. >> take off the traini

a penny of that money. six months ago this happened. michelle cruise was a victim advocate at the time of the sandy hook shooting and she joins us now. michelle, it is great to have you here. what went wrong? why has in this money gone to families? >> thank you for having me. you know, part of the problem is that there wasn't a lot of transparency in the beginning when this was created. united way came out and said that they are collecting funds for the families and the idea for all of the community in the nation was that people were going to give donations to these funds and the money will go directly to the families. then it seems that there have been several different approaches. then it went up to 7 million. i believe that with was it. in every state, crime victims have statutory rights, the idea that the community has given those donations was not based on need or that these funds were going to go to the community or services. gerri: you have said that these families are being re-injured because of this long-awaited time. >> i think they are being re-injured a number of ways. beca
